Iraqi parliament votes to remove kirkuk governor from office: lawmakers

Iraq’s parliament voted on Thursday to remove the governor of Kirkuk from office following a request from Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, according to several lawmakers who attended the vote.

The decision to remove the governor, Najmaddin Kareem, comes after Kirkuk - an oil-rich province claimed by both the central government in Baghdad and the autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq - decided to take part in a referendum set for Sept. 25 on Kurdish independence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And, following this story, comes the next troubling headline, regarding the fractious state of Iraq:

Iraqi Kurd President says ties with Baghdad are Cut over Sacking of Kirkuk Governer

So, when this comes to a military dustup between the Kurds and the Iraqis, over what has been traditionally Iraqi soil since 1923, where does the US government come in?!? How do they back the Kurds without causing a civil war between the Kurds and Iraqis over this?!?

The short answer is, the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of America cannot possibly back them without alienating the Iraqi leadership, big time.

Perhaps someone should have mentioned this possibility before the concept of an Independent Kurdistan, created to balkanize Iraq, was signed off on by the Pentagon, State Department, and White House.

Iraq could well have a new civil war on its hands, insuring a more permanent, and muscular, US troop strenth here.

But hey; this is all about Kirkuk's oil; who controls it is of no real interest to the Deep State in America, as long as the US gets to insure that all the oil in Kirkuk is controlled by US-centric corporations, and is only sold for the US dollar.
